What’s Your Number (2011)
I love a good romantic comedy.When Harry Met Sally will most likely forever sit in my “all time favorites” category of movies. When the romcom genre get’s it right, as a viewer you get a new movie that you will continue to watch annually, no matter how many times you’ve see it before. When they get it wrong however, you’re sit wondering why you spend so much money for such a shit movie.
With What’s Your Number? it’s caught in a weird in between stage. It was by no means great, and I probably won’t be rushing to watch it again, but it wasn’t bad and I did find myself charmed by the two leads as well as laughing and many of the moments.
The film has a lot of issues-mainly the fact that it plays into each and every cliche alive- but again, the two leads Anna Faris and Chris Evans are undeniably likeable. They’re both funny with good comic timing, and in Evans in particular has an ability to light up the screen. They were fun. The plot was absolutely ridiculous and there were an abundance of tropes, but hey, it was silly, it was light hearted and I didn’t regret watching it.
Okay, maybe I have a soft spot for it because it was shot it Boston.
I don’t know what to rate it. Watch it on a rainy day and make a drinking game out of each time you see one of the two leads without their shirt on.
